Sitting here doing plans and the sleet is tapping on the windows. Is it really the 15th of April? Grass is all covered in white.
Our testing is finished and we all did our best. Mr. Mud was very proud of everyone. Thank you for all the snacks. The kids and I really appreciated it.
We will be back on a regular schedule this week. In Wonders we will be starting Unit 5-week 2. The spelling words are posted on the spelling page.
One day this week, we will also be having our unit 6 math test.
On May 8th, the New England Aquarium will be coming for the third graders. This will be brought to us by the PTA. They are bringing an inflatable whale which will take up half the gym. We will do two sessions. 8:30 and 1:00. I am looking for three or four volunteers to man the tables for the kids after the presentation. The Aquarium will train you and tell you how to work the table. Tables will have information and all sorts of hands on about whales. Training session will be at 8:30.
Our session will be in the afternoon at 1:00. Please let me know if you are interested.
We are about halfway through the presidents. The kids are really enjoying he unit. Still looking for a date towards the end of May for our Presidential Reception.
So much going on with SAS Testing.
We did a mini unit on science that dealt with allergies. This week, we are going to explore pollen and bees.
I hope everyone enjoys their vacation next week. We will see the kids back on April 30th.
Let the kids be kids. Every child has a strength. It is up to the teacher to find it or tap it so they can work to their highest potential. I tend to set the bar very high. Lifetime memories should be made in the classroom and at school. NBCS should be a place where kids enter happy and go home with a smile on their face. I want my kids getting up in the morning begging to go to school!
